Caroline started first grade today!
It was a great day. She loves her teacher and being back in school. It probably didn't hurt that she was the girl who brought cupcakes on the first day of school. That's one sure way to endear yourself to other six year olds: bring sugar for the class.
Jeff and I dropped her off this morning and she wasn't nervous or anxious at all, just really excited about a new class, new kids, a new teacher, and lots of learning ahead. When I brought the cupcakes and stayed around the classroom until school was over, she was so happy to show me her classroom and tell me about all that they did today. She was most impressed with "the big kid playground" where she saw all of her friends from last year.
Even though it was her birthday, we made sure she went off to bed as close to her normal bedtime as possible to get geared up to do it all over again tomorrow!
Sans cupcakes of course.
Here are a few pictures from our 6 year old's first day:
